Hidden files feature request

In Gnome, MacOS-X, and in Kubuntu KDE, you can make a file hidden from
the desktop environment by listing it in a file called .hidden.
The .hidden file resides in the same directory as the files to be
hidden, and lists the files to be hidden as one file/line.

Files hidden by being listed in .hidden should behave like any other
dot file. E.g. they should be listed with ls -a

It would be nice if the bash shell used the same extended mechanism for
creating hidden files. Honoring the .hidden mechanism would allow for a
more consitent user experiece for peoople switching back and forth
between GUI and CLI environments.
